Don’t Scratch the Light Fixture

Digital Image

I usually remove the light fixtures, so that the wallpaper can go tidily behind them. On these sconces, though, the nuts that held them in place had been turned “man-tight,” and I could not turn them with my fingers.

So I pulled out my trusty pliers. But, the pliers are metal, and, if they rubbed against the metal light fixtures, could well scratch the finish.

So I put blue painter’s tape on both the pliers and the light fixture. This provided adequate padding that neither the nut nor the metal base of the fixture were damaged.
